Your Past Doesn’t Determine Your Future with Mario Pedro Gould [episode 43]
Meet Our Featured Guest on Express Success Radio
Mario Pedro Gould is deeply passionate about personal development and an avid student of spirituality, metaphysics, well-being and inspired leadership. His eclectic nature includes being an entrepreneur, a leader in network marketing as well as the host of the Alpha Success TV Network.
At the age of 28, Mario’s fast-paced lifestyle caught up with him in a way he could no longer deny. His habits of heavy drinking, partying and indulgence eventually led him to drop out of school and landed him in jail for public drunkenness.
When he saw a photo of himself at this time in his life, he barely recognized himself. When Mario’s father saw this same photo, he exclaimed “You look exactly like me!” which hit Mario over the head like a 2-by-4. In that instant Mario knew undeniably that he had to turn his life around rather than relive the same life his father had lived before him.
At this new stage of awareness and choice, Mario’s father delivered a life-changing piece of advice by saying to his son “Just stop it!”. It was simple and clear and he chose to do an about-face and begin his life anew. Once he ended his cycle of self-sabotage, he began investigating the reasons WHY he had made the poor choices he did.
He also realized that he could use his past to propel him forward toward greatness and to inspire others on their own journey to achievement.
The Action Steps
Mario shares what has worked for him and invites you to apply those ideas that resonate most deeply with you:
1. Watch Yourself: take a journal and write out exactly the choices and behaviors you’re engaging in from an objective view point. Then, read over what you’ve written and decide if those actions are serving you or harming you.
2. Assess The Outcome: If those habits are not serving you in crafting an epic life, choose to STOP it! While it’s not easy to say “I’m not doing that any more“ it’s a simple and powerful strategy for success if you simply choose to CHOOSE something better for yourself.
“Against all odds, I will make it to the top of mountain or you will find me dead upon it.” ― Mario Pedro Gould
